Another common phenomenon is people who write to complain because we actually take the time and effort to provide background, history, context, and other illuminating information about the items we research. We get gripes like "Keep your opinions to yourselves," "Why don't you just state the facts?" or "I don't want to have to read a bunch of stuff; just tell me whether it's true or not."

Of course, we go to the lengths we do because facts are meaningless without context. Some people never learn that simple truth, though.
